Summary

Five-year-old Cally waits in her pretty pink bedroom for the sound of the front door opening and her mother’s sweet voice in the hall. But when the doorbell finally rings and Cally creeps out of bed to peer through the banister, a large man in uniform is all she sees. Her mother is missing....

Teacher Annabel Braddock was last seen drinking at the local pub with her best friend, Jennifer. Witnesses saw tears running down her cheeks, and friends say she was having problems with a colleague at work and that her marriage had broken down.

But as the two women hugged good-bye, neither noticed the car speeding toward them. As the dust settled, Jennifer lay unconscious on the ground and Annabel was nowhere to be seen. She’d never abandon her little girl, so did someone snatch her?

As family crowds around Jennifer’s hospital bed, hoping she’ll wake up, police visit Annabel’s home, and her inconsolable daughter, Cally, tells them she had seen a man outside staring into her room as she climbed into bed that evening. Was it her childish imagination, or had someone been watching Annabel’s home?

When Jennifer finally opens her eyes and tells the police what happened that night, it’s clear there are plenty of people with a reason to harm Annabel. With an unpredictable husband, a colleague who denies harassing her, and a neighbor who seems to know her every move, could she be in imminent danger? As the hours turn to days, will little Cally ever see her precious mother again? Or will she be next?

If you love fast-paced, gripping crime thrillers that keep you up all night, you’ll be completely addicted to One Girl Missing. Perfect for fans of Angela Marsons, Cara Hunter, and Clare Mackintosh.

I NEVER WANT THIS SERIES TO END!!!

I don't know how Carla Kovach has written such a long series, where each book is unique and as good, if not better than its predecessor, but SHE HAS! I'm so sad that I'm at the end of the series but I hope there are more to come. I've loved each and every book and each one was excellently narrated. MORE PLEASE CARLA!!!

Not for me

I found the story to be tedious and the narration really didn't help. The so called 'brummy' accents were excruciating to listen to and really detracted from the narrative in my opinion. I Tried to get through the whole book but gave up with 2hrs left. I now don't care what happened to who and why!

Eleventh in the series

First of all, I hated the ending.

I like this series. Each book is an automatic pre-order.

Gina and her team are called to the scene of a hit and run and an abduction. This hits close to home for the team. There are several potential suspects, or are they witnesses?

I’m glad Gina’s late husband is not part of this story. There are enough moving parts without that storyline.

Excellent narration.

Guess who!

I have followed Gina through most of the murders she has solved and I really enjoy this series. Carla does a great job of making you question who the real culprit is, then turning the tides and implicating someone else, it is very well done! This was a great whodunnit and a great series overall.

Oh my gosh, great book!

I did not want this book to end. Spoiler Alert! I was really hoping that Gina and Briggs’s would get together permanently! Anyway once again this offer is really great at twist & turns, I could not figure out who did what until the very end, totally surprised me. Great author and great narrator I love the series.
